I spent the weekend buried in copies of The Velocipede Races, which arrived from the printers on Friday! I signed piles of copies for the generous Kickstarter backers and a few early lucky patrons who came upon me with TVR copies in my hands at Flow.
The book is absolutely beautiful, with a gorgeous cover illustration by Caroline Paquette, a muscle-corset done in the color known as Hot Hollywood Crimson. (This must mean it’s time for Hollywood to realize a bike-racing feminist costume drama is the next big thing? Starring Emma Watson and her brother? Directed by Tim Burton?)
Backers, your rewards are coming soon via mail or hand-to-hand. The official release date for the book is April 2016, but copies are already eagerly breaking free and racing into the wild.
You can order copies directly from Microcosm Publishing here.
I have a few extra signed copies, too, so you can contact me for a signed and personalized copy.
